Introduction

Celia Perez 12 Angry Men The play 12 Angry Men is one of the greatest plays I've seen. I read the novel and saw both movies but my favorite was the Broadway play we saw as a class. The play was so alive and made me really feel like I was in the jury. The play was about a young man on trial for the murder of his father. The play showed how one man didn't give up in what he believed to be true. The play also showed a powerful leader who fought till the end. The play was about 12 jurors coming to the same verdict. It was eleven to one in favor of guilty. Only one juror stood up to the eleven because of what he believed. He felt the evidence wasn't strong enough against the young man to convict him of murder. However this juror wasn't like the rest of the jury. ...read more.

Middle

Juror number eight thought about comparing the difference between an older man running and a young man running because he felt the old man was lying. So when they re-acted the whole the found out it took thirty seconds instead of fifteen. From then on the jury thought the old man was lying about everything he testified about. When juror number eight pointed this out he won some jurors over to vote not guilty. This was the beginning of the play only about three jurors changed their mind. The knife the father was murdered with could have been bought in any store. Juror number eight proved it by buying the same knife and showing it to the rest of the jury. The last person to testify against the young boy was elderly lady from across the street that said she saw the murder take place. Juror number eight showed again that it wasn't possible for her to see anything clearly because there was a elevated train passing while the murder took place and she was trying to sleep. ...read more.

Conclusion

I think there is two sides to every story. When both sides of the story are the same then that's the truth. When one story has extra details then someone is exaggerating so their story can look better, which can make it a lie. It makes me feel like the person is scared of telling the truth because they know what they said or did is wrong. Both of these lessons I learned will be with me forever. It doesn't matter what everyone else thinks. It's about what I feel in my heart, what's right from wrong, like ethics. Many people in the world exaggerate so they can dress-up their story to sound good and make it almost believable when they are lying. This play has showed me many things to remember for when I'm in the same situation. I enjoyed reading this play but seeing it live was awesome. The live play was nothing like the book. I would always recommend 12 Angry Men as one of the greatest plays everyone must see or read.. ?? ?? ?? ?? 1 ...read more.
